How do I find information about court dates?

        -> The Spalding County Sheriff's Office does not assign court dates. We are frequently asked by inmates, and family members, about when someone is supposed to go to court. The best resource to obtain this information is the Spalding County Online Records Search, also known as "the portal." The website is https://gaspaldingprodportal.tylerhost.net/Portal/ . The information maintained in the portal is not maintained by the Sheriff's Office.


I, or an inmate, requested, and was assigned, a Public Defender for my case. How do I find out who was assigned and their contact information?

        -> The Public Defender's Office is a separate entity from the Spalding County Sheriff's Office. When inmates are processed through booking, they may request a public defender by filling out a request form. Once the information is sent to the public defender's office, this is the end of the Sheriff's Office's involvement with obtaining a public defender.

The Public Defender’s Office (Felony Cases) can be reached at 141 W. Solomon Street, Griffin, GA  30224. The phone number is 770-467-4725.
